Okay--I cooked up a batch of the black glutenous rice yesterday (I soaked it for about 4 hours--it took about the same amount of time to cook as brown or cargo rice). Yes, it does have a purplish-color to it <g>. I cooked some just to taste it...hmmm...sticky. I would say it has a sweet, somewhat nutty flavor. Now to figure out what to do with the rest of it. My DH didn't particularly care for it. Too sticky. Maybe if I make a coconut juice rice pudding he'll like it...

cws, how about warming a serving of the sticky rice, then top it with sliced mango and reduced sweetened coconut milk?

one of my favourite thai desserts.

That sounds really good. I have some dehyrated mango...no fresh.

I found a nice article on a magazine speaking about rice and wine. Do u know which is the better wine to combine with risotto? Well, that chef suggested the white wines, expecially those with a light perlage.
I thought it'd be interesting for u to know!
do u agree with him?
he told that into risotto, u have to add a table spoon of cream at the end of cooking, so that it gives a smoothy delight to the dish...

I was always told that you do not add cream to risotto but I can see where just a small amount would add a lovely smooth and rich mouth feel to the dish. Can't comment on the wine.

I added brown & wild rice medley and lentils to my veggie beef soup.

The pilaf recipe I posted has lentils and wild rice. I add lentils/barley to my wild rice all the time. I just make sure that I have enough water for the grains.

Zatarain's makes an excellent red beans & rice boxed mix.

Hi Lou10,

I like to combine brown rice & barley as a base & then add various mixtures of sauteed onion, mushrooms, garlic, vegetables & seasonings to that.
